February 16, 1898
THE EVENING TRIBUNE, San Diego, California, Feb. 16, 1898
* USS Maine explosion (1st report)
* Spanish- American War prelude
The front page has a nice stack of two-column heads on the battleship Maine tragedy: "A NATIONAL CALAMITY" "The Battleship Maine Blown Up in Havana Harbor" "NEARLY THREE HUNDRED MEN ARE DEAD" "Thrilling Story of the Survivors--The Explosion Believed to Have Been Accidental--List of Those Saved--Expert Opinions".
There is considerable reporting on this notable event, thought of by many as the most memorable event of the Spanish-American War.
Four pages, library stamp in the masthead, in surprisingly nice condition.
